Skydiver becomes first to land without parachute

Posted by Anup Baral July 31, 2016 :
Pro skydiver Luke Aikins successfully completed an insane stunt on Saturday for a Fox TV special. He jumped out of a plane WITH NO PARACHUTE and fell 25,000 feet into a net the size of about one-third of a football field. (The photo above is from one of his training runs.)

A 42-year-old US skydiver with more than 18,000 jumps makes history on Saturday when he becomes the first person to leap without a parachute and land in a net instead. After a two-minute freefall, Luke Aikins landed dead centre in the 100-by-100-foot (30-30 metre) net at the Big Sky movie ranch on the outskirts of Simi Valley. As cheers erupted, Aikins quickly climbed out, walked over and hugged his wife, Monica, who had been watching from the ground with their four-year-old son
